New to Paul Theroux? Then Sunrise with Sea Monsters is the ideal place to start. A wide ranging selection of Theroux’s writings including sketches, reviews, essays and observations. The writing reminded me very much of George Orwell’s essays so I’ve included that in the Like for Like recommendation along with another Paul Theroux reissue this month, his novel, My Other Life.

Synopsis

Sunrise with Seamonsters Travels and Discoveries 1964-1984 by Paul Theroux

Sunrise with Sea Monsters is Paul Theroux's immensely entertaining collection of his shorter writings, ranging from sketches to critical essays. Each piece marks a new 'confrontation with the world' and throws new light on the political and social climate of diverse cultures such as those of New York, Singapore, Ireland and Malawi. Others give a lively portrayal of the people Theroux has met or books and landscapes which have inspired him.

Reviews

Theroux serves as both the camera and the eye, and both the details and the illusions are developed with brilliance. Time Magazine

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
